Beautiful Prayer to the Holy Spirit

holy_spiritAfter the readings of last Sunday’s Mass, the celebration of Pentecost, a most beautiful prayer or petition, called a Sequence, was set forth. And yesterday, I opened my mother’s Sunday Missal, and coincidentally, it rested upon the page containing this same prayer. I would like to share it with all of you:

Come, O Holy Spirit, come;
And from Thy heavenly Home
Shed a ray of Light divine.
Come, Thou, Father of the poor;
Come, with treasures that endure;
Come, to light this heart of mine.

Thou of all consoles best,
Thou the soul’s most welcome guest,
Grace, refreshment now bestow,
Thou in toil our comfort sweet,
Thou our Peace in passion’s heat,
Solace in the midst of woe.

Light Immortal! Light Divine!
Visit Thou these hearts of Thine
And our inmost being fill.
If Thou take Thy grace away,
Nothing pure in man will stay;
All his good is turned to ill.

Heal our wounds; our strength renew;
On our dryness pour Thy dew;
Wash the stains of guilt away.
Do Thou bend the rigid will;
The frozen heart with fervor fill;
Guide the steps that go astray.

Upon those who trust Thee evermore,
Thee believe and Thee adore,
In Thy sevenfold gifts descend.
Give them virtue’s sure reward;
Give them Thy salvation, Lord;
Give them joys that never end.

Amen. Alleluia!

Not every single person but you get what i mean. But us Americans to come together as brothers and sisters to walk righteous because the church houses are wrong jesus spoke outside the building so everybody could hear the gospel and us men need to put in the works when woman should be home getting taoght privately.

See everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody want to die for god. Us men are suppose to be gods sons and soldiers. spiritually battle and physical battle fight in gods name! God gave life why would he want them to take life? even in the corrupt bible not all is i assume because im coming from spirit speaking from experience God says in Hebrews not to indulge in man made buildings but man does anyway. im going to say this and leave it at that, but if you got God in your life and you have a good… Read more »


Michael, I know you mean well, but the Holy Spirit is not subject to any limitations since the Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity. Every day I go to a lovely Chapel, and in the True Presence of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Consecrated Bread from Heaven which is in the Tabernacle, I pray to the Triune God: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, one God in Three Divine Persons, a mystery which is taught to us by Jesus Himself. The Triune God is present… Read more »

Matthew 18:20
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
1 Corinthians 5:4
in the name of our Lord Jesus, ye being gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus,


Thank you for sharing. I have the privilege and delight to assist at a beautiful Latin Mass, offered strictly by the Rubrics by the FSSP (and with new beautiful red Vestments, to boot!). The prayer touched my soul then and now! There is such wisdom in using the traditional Latin with its proper English translation.
